Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author of The Event Group series returns with a new paranormal supernatural thriller just in time for Halloween. Set in the world of The Supernaturals, one of Riffle's Ten Best Haunted House Books of All Time.

Five years ago, the ghost hunting Supernaturals disbanded after being accused of faking their experiences at Summer House. Now, the eccentric, but brilliant, team of scientists and paranormal experts are being asked to join forces once again - this time to save the president.

Through strenuous investigation and mysterious messages about returning home, the team soon discovers the long lost home of the president: a small town in California called Moreno, a modern ghost town.

When the Supernaturals go to Moreno for answers, they find a presence; something came to Moreno after WWII, something that's still locked in a steel vault in the basement of the town's old movie theater.

To make matters worse, the thing in the basement is starting to pull them into its time, Halloween of 1963. With the body count rising, it'll be up to the Supernaturals to find an explanation for what this paranormal being is and how to defeat it.

Great book, awesome author ruined by the narrator.

I am returning this audio book and I can't do it fast enough. David Golemon is an awesome author and this narrator has taken a great story and destroyed it with a terrible performance. There are eight characters in the Supernatural team and everyone of them sounds the same. Two of those characters are African American, one is Native American and one is Hispanic and they all sound alike. There is no absolutely no difference in the voices. The narration is so flat that it is hard to follow the story line. I own The Supernaturals in audio by both Jeffrey Kafer and Stephen Thorne. I prefer the version by Kafer. The story line of In the Still of the Night is great. I was really looking forward to the release of this in audio format. Thank goodness I have the book version In the Still of the Night to read. Too bad my husband will be cooking for the next couple of days while I am otherwise occupied.

a surprising disappointment

The change in narrator from the original release of the first book was a bit tough to get used to at the beginning. This narrator did a decent job overall, but failed to capture the personalities established in the first book. This book had a lot of continuity issues, I felt. I cannot imagine how tough it is to write a story from multiple perspectives in time, and then try to link it all together. I did not feel that this book did the story justice. A lot of the plot elements seem to have been almost chosen at random.

The real star of this book was the backstory that was told about Dean and Gloria. In reading the segments set in that time there was far more interest and vivacity that seemed to have been completely drained from our characters that comprise the team; The Supernaturals.

I absolutely adored the first book and was sadly disappointed in the sequel.

Excellent follow up tale to the Supernaturals

What did you love best about In the Still of the Night?

The story was good, waiting a long time for the follow up to The Supernaturals. Sadly, instead of working with the original reader for Still of the Night, instead the Supernaturals was rereleased with Stephen Thorne as the reader.

What did you like best about this story?

David Goleman is a good writer and tells a great story. The Still of the Night was well worth the wait.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Stephen R. Thorne?

Jeffrey Kafer

If you could rename In the Still of the Night, what would you call it?

Dark of the Night

Any additional comments?

Do not get the re-release of the Supernaturals, if you can find it, get the original. The replacement of Jeffrey Kafer is as jarring as the replacement Dumbledore-instead of taking cues from the original, the replacement chewed the scenery doing his own thing.

Good, Not Great

I loved the first Supernaturals book, but this one doesn’t live up to my expectations, mainly because the plot is too over-the-top. The book also has inconsistencies, implausibilities, and areas where the writing needs to be tightened up. These didn’t ruin the book for me, but they definitely detracted from my enjoyment of it.

Mr. Thorne’s narration is fine. It’s not great, but I've heard far, far worse. My chief complaint is that it’s hard to distinguish the individual characters. With a few exceptions, the characters all sound alike.

This book feels completely different from the previous one. It’s difficult to explain why. The first book was about a group of friends solving a mystery in a spooky, isolated, haunted house. This one is way over the top in comparison. It feels more like one of Mr. Golemon’s Event Group books. It’s about a science experiment gone wrong and a military conspiracy to hush it up. Heck, it even has guns and explosions and a mission to save the President. It’s like the author took an Event Group story and swapped out the Event Group characters for the Supernaturals characters. In fact, if you’re a fan of the Event Group series, you’ll probably like this a lot.

It’s not a bad book, but it’s not great either. IMHO, this isn’t worth a credit, but it’s worth a few bucks if you can get it on sale.

So happy to see the Supernaturals again

Not as good a story as the first one but still great all the same. I don't want to give away any info so I'll be oblique; I didn't like the 2 losses and hoped the ending would restore them but it didn't. I hope to see more stories about the Supernaturals soon. The narrator is also very good.
